I tend to agree with Clayton. I don't think the record will be as good this year but it's not a product so much of the team regressing (as in '06) but just playing a tougher schedule. Not to mention potential for big injuries.
Very encouraging article, it won't let me +rep you again or I would lol. Especially happy to read about Palmer and Jones.
I actually hadn't seen that Michael Johnson was officially transitioning to SLB. That will surely help the pass rush on passing downs.
I'm pretty comfortable with the team they'll put out there next season. What I do like about the offense is that now there seems to be better balance... In the event Benson did get hurt I'm far more comfortable in the way the offense can work. Plus, they were good enough to beat the Steelers without Benson because the defense is so dominant at times.
I can't explain how much I enjoy finally having a defensive team.
